Carnival support again

Hastings Direct will be lead sponsor of Bexhill Carnival for the second year running.

Last year over 35,000 local residents participated during the week with over 45 floats fielded in the carnival procession – now organisers are optimistic that this year’s event will be better than ever.

This year’s carnival will be held from July 19-26 and the theme is Story Books & Nursery Rhymes.

Gary Hoffman, CEO, Hastings: “As Bexhill’s largest employer, we are proud to be sponsoring such a prestigious and fun event. Our staff and their families were really supportive of last year’s event and we are looking forward to doing even more this year.”

Last summer over a dozen local businesses supported the event and the Carnival raised over £4,000. The 2014 Bexhill Carnival will again fundraise for local charities, to be announced shortly. For latest news visit or keep updated via Twitter or Facebook.
